Toledo Mud Hens TicketsThe Toledo Mud Hens baseball team is the Triple-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. Perhaps best known in popular culture for their depiction in the TV show "M*A*S*H," the Mud Hens acquired their distinctive name in 1896 while playing near Toledo’s marshlands, where the birds' calls could be heard during the games. Following the team’s departure from Toledo in 1956, the city acquired a new franchise a decade later. The reconstituted Mud Hens joined the International League, making it the third longest-running member behind only Rochester and Syracuse. Throughout its history, the team has been affiliated with Cleveland, Minnesota, Philadelphia and New York. Detroit has served as the affiliate since 1987 and between 1967 and 1973. It was also the affiliate of the old Mud Hens in the 1930s and 1950s. As a minor league development and farm organization, Toledo has served as an important stop for many baseball greats. Toledo has won the International League title in 1967, 2005 and 2006. Grab your Toledo Mud Hens tickets at StubHub.
